In September 2018 we prepared to lose our evenings and social lives to Netflix’s latest blockbuster TV show, Maniac. Starring Hollywood’s finest Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, the show centres around two people who, weighed down by past traumas, agree to take part in a pharmaceutical trial which promises to erase all human pain forever. Naturally, things don’t quite go according to plan…
To mark the launch of the show we worked directly with Netflix on a bespoke printed vinyl mural, taking over a huge space near the popular and ever trendy Broadway Market in Hackney. The mural was even printed with special spot colouring on the TVs to give the eery effect of looking at real screens –and created buzz on the street during the week of the global premiere.
